Dallas Summerfest, “Wild West” theme, food, arts & crafts, waterball, car show, art, today through Sunday, Polk County Courthouse Lawn, Dallas, www.dallasoregon.org

Oregon Brewers Festival Oregon’s big beer event has a lot to recommend it, from the more than 80 beers from all over the country to the exhibits, restaurants, soda garden, live music and vendors to the fact that the festival recommends alternative modes of transportation (which makes extra sense given that they want you to enjoy their beer). FREE bike parking is available and the whole shebang is just blocks from the MAX line. It all begins with the Oregon Brewers Brunch (10am, $36 for food, two pints of Deschutes beer, a T-shirt and a $10 festival tasting package) & parade, which begins at 11:30 am July 28 at Deschutes Brewery’s Portland Public House and winds its way to the main festival’s opening festivities.
